Your Table is Waiting

Grano

A pure, soulful expression of Costa Rican ingredients and Latin American culinary rituals, Grano is the chef’s laboratory. Warm, inviting and rustic in style, the dishes served tell a story – of a place, traditions, ingredients. Influenced by cuisine throughout Central America, the menu hosts a rich palette of flavors with great variety and ever-changing food and beverage journeys.

Inspired Dining Venues

Picoteo

Served poolside, this effortless cuisine is fresh, appealing, and meant to be shared by the entire family. Punctuated by the occasional dinner, Picoteo's menu is inspired by the cuisine and ethos of food as adventure and wellbeing that is signature to Hacienda AltaGracia.

Mercado

The heart of the resort, this multi-function crossroads will keep you nourished and refreshed throughout the day. Offering easy access to snacks and beverages, coffee and pastries, the all-day continental-style menu utilizes local ingredients and is a welcoming space for curious minds.

Las Brisas

Offering a rotating menu that includes items from Picoteo and classic poolside favorites, the food at Las Brisas is perfect for enjoying a leisurely afternoon. The palapa bar serves beer, wine, and simple, fresh fruit juice-driven, aperitif-style cocktails for chaise lounge imbibing.

Cienfuegos

Defined by sensational get-togethers, Cienfuegos recreates some of the best elements of Costa Rican culture. Inspired by BBQ and rodeo, this lively dinner experience spotlights a simple land and sea menu cooked over a dried coconut husk-based fire. Served with an array of accompaniments, including small salads, vegetables, fermented items from the larder, plus grains and beans, the cuisine takes inspiration from Korean BBQ.

El Cultivo

The chef's garden at AltaGracia is a key component of overall life. Connecting with the land, which provides produce and herbs, creates a deeper understanding and appreciation of food and its provenance. Private dinners can be enjoyed within El Cultivo – or select your morning fruit from the stand to be custom-served to you at the Mercado. Medicinal plant classes and foraging expeditions maximize the garden's offering.
